Client Dennis de Koning, senior consultant ADSE engineering, says about Jolanda:

'Jolanda is a great person and a very competent coach. She coached me on my personal and consultancy skills, making me aware of my own and other's behavior and sense making. Always in a friendly manner, but confronting at the same time. Working on specific cases proved very effective, as Jolanda provided me with new insights, but challenged me to find my own ways and perspectives. For me, this resulted in the most valuable personal learning experience I've ever had.'
